A Message From Col As many of you know I have been running this site for around 16 years and have always strived to get any news to you as soon as possible. This year I am taking an extended vacation, which means there may be delays in getting show information to you quickly. In particular the 4 shows between 20 July - 28 July may have their reports delayed by several days. I ask that you bear with us.(Added 19 July)

Low Attendance Roger kicked off his 2013 Wall show in Holland on the 18th July to a half empty Arena in Arnhem Holland. The show was added very late in the planning of the tour, so that may account for poor ticket sales. In any event the crowd seemed to enjoy themselves and reviews, pictures & videos are now available. Arnhem Holland (Added 19 July)

Here We Go Again! Preparations are well underway for Roger's 2013 leg of The Wall show. First pictures are now in of the stage at Arnhem Holland and we are delighted to tell you that AFG contributor Simon Wimpenny is again sharing his most excellent BLOG with us all and assisting AFG with our coverage of the tour. (added 15 July)

Athens Date & Venue Change It's been announced that Roger Waters Wall show that was to be held in Athens at the Olympic Stadium (OAKA) on July 31st has now been moved to August 1st at Terra Vibe. Tickets already purchased for July 31st will be good for the 1st August but we understand that no refunds are available if you purchased your tickets from Ticketpro as stated on their web site . However it does appear that if you booked your tickets from rogerwaters.com and are unable to attend on the 1st Aug that you will get a refund, as their policy is 'Should you be unable to attend the new date, we will credit you the cost of your tickets plus the service charge (the ticket transaction fee is non-refundable). We will notify you about the new show details and the refund process via email'. (Added11 July) IMPORTANT CHANGE OF PLANS!!! It has now been announced that due to due to the reaction of fans to the change of date & venue of the Athens show, and as production problems have been solved the show now returns at OAKA on July 31. A win for common sense at last! (Updated 15 July)

Venue Changes. Due to technical, production and curfew issues the August 7th show in Prague has moved to the O2 Arena and the September 1st show in Belgrade has moved to the Belgrade Arena.
